Altrusa International Foundation honored its local chapter – Altrusa Club of Door County – with the substantial grant of $2,000. This grant was used toward the club’s annual back-to-school fair, which provided school supplies and many other new things to children returning to school in fall. Grants are available to local Altrusa Clubs to improve economic wellbeing and quality of life through commitment to literacy and community service.
